Awful food, too expensive.
My husband and I went to this restaurant because we read all of the great reviews and we had a coupon for buy one entree, get one free. We got the fried yucca for an appetizer ( I LOVE fried yucca) and it was okay, but the spicy ketchup to dip did not compliment it well.
I got the lamb rack entree with rice and vegetables. The lamb was completely dry and unseasoned. It was very tough and chewy. I think the word that best describes it would be "awful". The vegetables were good, but scarce. The white rice was abundant, but was simply white rice. I took a couple bites, ate my veggies, and was finished, but still hungry.
My husband got a salmon entree with a mango sauce. It sounded delicious on the menu, but was honestly the worst, driest salmon we have ever had. There was hardly enough sauce to even taste. It came with...you guessed it, an abundance of plain white rice and a miniscule amount of a "mango salsa" that ended up being the only thing my husband ate. The salmon went to the dog.
The worst part of the whole experience was that even after the coupone for a free entree, we spent $30 on this awful meal that neither of us could bare to eat. Needless to say, we will not be returning to Cafe Bossa Nova.
